Feverfew, also known as flirtwort and featherfoil, is a member of the daisy family that resembles chamomile, only the flowers are smaller. The plant is an attractive perennial garden plant. Oddly, however, bees avoid the plant due to its strong, bitter scent. The herb has a long history of use in Europe, where it is still commonly used to make teas, tinctures and tonics. Feverfew is also made into syrups, lozenges and topical ointments.
